HL Deb 26 January 2004 vol 656 cc1-2WA
Lord Norton of Louth

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many, and which, measures enacted in 2001, 2002 and 2003 have been, or it is intended will be, subject to programme evaluation. [HL640]

The Lord President of the Council (Baroness Amos)

All legislation is subject to evaluation by the departments responsible, but whether a particular programme of evaluation has been, or will be, followed in the case of each of the Acts passed in 2001, 2002 and 2003 could be established only at disproportionate cost. The noble Lord will be aware that the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001 has recently been reviewed by a committee of Privy Counsellors.
